Each day you arrive into the classroom, our schedule holds four 1.5hr sessions with a 30 minute break in between each session and a 1.5 hour lunch. We strive to be conscious of everyone’s needs during this immersive course. Breaks allow time for information to sink in and absorb. There is so much information given during these two weeks, we are sensitive to and value your personal time throughout the duration.
Before the class day starts, participants will be grouped into teams to practice and maintain farm chores, help prepare breakfast, and assist with other various tasks around the property. These group chores build camaraderie between all of the participants and encourage and support working within a team environment.

The schedule also holds one day of rest and one off site visit to local permaculture farms in the area. The owners/managers of each farm, give a tour of the space and how each site uses permaculture in their over-all plan, history of the site, and how to volunteer. This will be the perfect opportunity to ask these farm leaders questions. Often they have produce available and plants for sale that they have propagated themselves.
